Fortnite Achieves Record-Breaking 6.6 Million Live Players

Epic Games’ Fortnite has once again set a new record for peak live players, with over 6.6 million players engaging in all its modes. The game achieved an amazing 2.3 million+ players in the Lego Fortnite mode alone.

This impressive milestone marks the highest peak of players since public reporting of numbers began in March 2023, excluding the unprecedented turnout of 11.6 million+ during a special event day. This is possible thanks to the addition of new game modes within the Fortnite universe, including Lego Fortnite and Rocket Racing.

Lego Fortnite is a survival sandbox game that has captured players’ imaginations with its unique blend of Lego Minifig character versions, material collection, building, and monster battles. Rocket Racing is a spin-off from the popular Rocket League, this racing game allows players to indulge in high-speed action with cross-game support for car-related cosmetics.

Since its launch in 2017, Fortnite has evolved into more than just a game; it’s a cultural phenomenon. The various modes, including Battle Royale, Save the World, and Creative, along with newer additions like Lego Fortnite, Rocket Racing, and Fortnite Festival, cater to a wide array of gaming preferences.

Fortnite’s wide accessibility across multiple platforms has played a crucial role in its success. Save the World is available on macOS, PlayStation 4, Windows, and Xbox One. Battle Royale and Creative have extended their reach to Android and iOS devices and the Nintendo Switch. The newest modes, including Lego Fortnite, Rocket Racing, and Fortnite Festival, have followed suit, releasing on all available platforms.
